Jacqueline Goss uses a variety of analog and digital media to explore the expressive slides and snags one encounters while moving between oral and written communication. All of her work features the speaking subject. In each piece, voice also determines the selection of tools, materials, and approach. Recent video projects include "The 100th Undone" --an ode to the individual in the age of biotechnical reproduction and "There There Square" --a short animated history of mapmaking in the United States. Her media work has shown at such venues as the New York Video Festival, Rotterdam Film Festival, Flaherty Film Seminar, Pacific Film Archive, Walker Center for the Arts, and the International Symposium of Electronic Art (ISEA). She has received fellowships and residencies from the New York Foundation for the Arts, New York Council on the Arts, Banff Centre for the Arts, Experimental Television Center and the Macdowell Colony.
